In this seminar some alternatives to the linear regression model as remedial measures will be presented such as: weighted least squares as a fix to the violation of non-constancy of the error variance assumption, Ridge (also LASSO and Elastic Net) regression as a fix to the problem of multicolinearity, Robust regression as a fix to the presence of influential observations,  Non-linear/non-parametric regression as a fix to the problems with the linearity assumption and Time-series models (and Random effect models) as a fix to the violation of the independence assumption. Examples will be presented using the R software.
